Art Fund Prize Winner

The Lightbox, Woking, Surrey (2008)And the winner of the £100,000 Art Fund Prize 2008 is The Lightbox, which is both a museum and an art gallery. Clearly the judges weren't seduced by the Wellcome Collection's offer to share the prize money between the losing finalists if it were to win (CLICK). They described The Lightbox - the product of a 14-year public campaign which raised £7m - as an "ingenious jewel" of grassroots action.
